Mathematical Institute of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts
The Mathematical Institute of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (MISANU) is a unique centre for mathematically-oriented fundamental and technological research in Serbia.
It employs more than 70 full-time researchers and 250 part-time collaborators at over 40 different institutions (mostly faculties of the Universities in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Niš, Kragujevac and Novi Pazar), and is involved in 8 national and several international projects. According to the most recent report by the National Council for Research and Technological Development, MISANU is the second best research institution in Serbia. The Ranking Web of World Research Centres announced that MISANU is among the 5% most influential world research institutions on the Web.
Traditionally, MISANU has paid attention to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), trying to direct at least a part of its research toward societal needs. In particular, an effort has been made to organize interdisciplinary collaboration with local, national and international partners, and find practical applications of theoretical results of its researchers. While implementing this approach, the Institute had to face “obstacles and barriers” from colleagues within. As a NUCLEUS partner, MISANU will undertake research, evaluation, training and dissemination activities with the aim of ensuring the highest academic and educational standards of RRI work and best practices.
